The Undergraduate Resource Hub is a resource sharing partnership between the College of Engineering and the College of Design. The Resource Hub was created with the purpose of facilitating the sharing of shop and lab resources between member departments, colleges and across campus. This is accomplished by centralizing the student training materials, safety training records and shop equipment through the Resource Hub website.
The Resource Hub serves Iowa State University students by making it easier to find necessary shop and lab resources to build ISU projects. The Resource Hub also provides the training necessary to use these resources with skilled Student Tech Mentors. The Student Tech Mentors are also available to build ISU related parts which require the use of the higher skill level equipment that many undergraduate students may not have the expertise to operate.
